Today, we are going to give you a 101 on these beauty butters and how they can change your beauty game forever. Here are three natural beauty butters and how to use them for healthy skin and hair.
Extracted from cocoa beans, this smooth pale yellow butter is a powerhouse of antioxidants. Plus, it is extremely nourishing and has an intoxicating smell. You can use it to moisturise your hair, face, lips - literally every part of your body. Simply melt it and apply it either directly or mix with your fave moisturiser and oils for intense hydration.
A natural moisturiser with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, and zero comedogenic percentage, shea butter is a godsend for every skin type. It heals sensitive skin, hydrates dry skin and is good for oily skin too as it doesn’t clog pores or invite acne. Extracted from shea nuts, it can also lighten acne scars and stretch marks. Use it on your skin daily to make your skin soft, spotless and smooth.
Lesser-known of all the beauty butters out there, kokum butter is an ideal emollient to treat dry and oily skin, alike. It is antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and a strong antioxidant that nourishes your skin and strengthens your hair. Use it as a balm on your skin for instant hydration and whip it and apply on your hair for strong and luscious tresses.
